a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care also had a slow start. >> reporter: that's right. as you said, the president traveled up to boston to make those comparisons between his health care plan and mitt romney's health care plan. he was talking about the bumpy rollout. there were some bumps, but not as many in romney care. but there was another mission for the president today and that was to do some damage control acknowledging some of the website problems that have plagued obama care in recent weeks and he made mention of that pretty early on in his remarks. >> there is no denying it, right now the website is too slow, too many people have gotten stuck

apologizing and being defensive. the realty is the nsa has saved thousands of lives not just in united states but in france and germany and throughout europe. quite frankly they have done so much for our country and help this president in his term, he should be -- he's commander in chief, he should stand with nsa. >> george w. bush took like the peter king approach, the world was black and white. if it was furthering our aim of capturing bad guys, that was the end of the story. this president because he is conflicted in some ways he's not getting praise or doing the right thing by either side's opinion. he seems publicly sort of like he's not even sure where he should be did. >> i don't think he knows where he is. he didn't even know this was going on. >> come on, he knew. we talk honestly in public about what we do with intelligence, of course he knew. >> i don't think that makes it better for him not to have known. i'm not sure they would put that out there if it's not true. >> there's a factual question, if he knew and he and his team are continuing to misrepresent that, that's deeply prob

" in seaworld's defense of its programs. take a look. >> the cnn film "blackfish" is taking social media by storm. on facebook and twitter, thousands debate the ethics of keeping animals in captivity at aquariums and theme parks. many say their were stunned that this allegation of mistreatment may have led to deadly consequences for trainers. after watching this documentary, i can never be happy at seaworld again, said one. and another says heartbreaking to watch the whales in captivity. how can someone think this is okay? but it's not just the internet. >> it's not fair to the animal that they have to be taken out of their natural environment so we can be able to see them and learn about them. >> they're really big fish, usually kept in small quarters. doesn't seem right. >> it tells the story of a veteran seaworld trainer dragged into the water and drown by a killer whale she was working with in 2010. >> the whale lanchs onto her and took her under. >> now former trainers believe killer whales should be released back into the wild or retired to sea pens. why do you think they're still
, to defense matters, to economic matters. i'm a strong supporter of it. >> reporter: the director of national intelligence, james clapper announced overnight he's declassifying a trove of documents about collection under the foreign intelligence surveillance act or fisa. this is the act that authorized collection of data on virtually every telephone caller here in the u.s. and later today, clapper and the head of the nsa, keith alexander, will be testifying on the hill. kate, we can expect them to face hard questions as well. >> surveillance about american citizens made some sense. i wonder if they're getting pushed too far, jim. thanks for the reporting this morning. let's head to the white house. they say they're going to declassify and review everything. brianna keilar with more this morning. is the white house abandoning the program. >> would you would wonder if you are listening to democratic senate chairman of the intelligence committee, dianne feinstein, she said, quote, collection on our allies will not continue. but one senior administration official that i've checked with said that
have northrop grumman, from the defense sector, bank of america. i mean this all sound very good but are we really safe from cyber attacks at this very moment? >> we're not even close and i don't think the effort that's underway right now in today's meeting a part of is getting us very close. we're not talking about anything close to security standards that companies can implement. there is a lot of fear out there that the government will tell us how we need to protect our networks? do we need to use this software or that hardware. we're so far away from that it is almost mind boggling. i'm not even sure what the strategy is at this point. ashley: let me bring in on that note, governor ridge. that is the big question, isn't it? getting the public and private sector to work together. why is that such a challenge? >> i think it shouldn't be a challenge but i think it is. it is ironic that today the president with his executive order meeting with private sector who own, operate and would be responsible for securing the critical infrastructure of this country. while i think it is a v
casualties. one was intercepted by a missile defense system. the other fell into open ground. no casualties reported. the israelis did strike back as i say launching the air strikes a few hours ago hitting concealed rocket launching sites inside the gaza strip. palestinian officials say that -- confirmed the air strikes took place but say there were no injuries either. now, it's been very quiet in the gaza trip the last several months particularly because a peace process backed by the secretary of state of the united states in general under way between the israelis and palestinians and not clear if the rocket attacks were launched in that. they were release another 26 palestinian prisoners held in israeli jails as a confidence measure to try to promote the peace process. >> matthew, nearly a year since the cease-fire deal was struck but the last few weeks it seems to have entered a new phase with israeli destroying a smuggling tunnel into gaza. are there fears that these air strikes and the missile launches over the last day could escalate into a new really hot conflict between the two side
on into this case. the judge's order for a new trial, he says skakel's defense lawyer made numerous mistakes including failure to call an alibi witness, failure to identify other potential suspects in the case, and not mentioning reasonable doubt in his closing argument. in your opinion, would those things have changed the verdict? >> absolutely. they would have joined the verdicts. the only thing that the jury heard was testimony saying michael skakel confessed to clubbing martha moxley to death with a golf club. they never heard the testimony of the people who said he couldn't have done that. he was 11 miles away. and i'll tell you why what he was doing that night. he had a brother called rush skakel who had lived in london for a year. and rush skakel while he was in london had watched monty python's flying circus which was on bbc in london but it had never been shown in this country. and it was going to have a premiere on u.s. television. so he loved the show and he invited michael and julie skakel and george and then a man who today is a famous psychiatrist who was an acquaintance of his

it? maybe. most likely. did he lie? i have possible but the secretary of defense not conclusive. here is the example of a provable lie just so you know. last night bill maher progressive zealot accused me of promoting the republican party, implying that i used talking points from the g.o.p. that's a lie. i have never received republican talking points in my life. anyone who watches this program knows but moore doesn't care. he has nothing to lose by spouting dishonest jibber irish. he makes money doing it president obama has a lot to do in fact, he could be impeached. if that were proved proved beyond a reasonable doubt. why would the president risk that in the key question in this intense debate? that's the memo. we will read some of your letters on the subject at the end of the broadcast. now joining us from los angeles ebony williams radio talk show host in for kirsten tonight and kate observen observe on -- obama care a great program that will benefit the vast majority of americans. he did not address the lie thing straight on, but indicated that his descriptions of the benefits o

'm not interested in reinventing the world. how abo defensive medicine? has anybody talked about that? nothing in regard to that. >> let me drag this, this is hard for me as an historian. i want to pick it back up. i was a little surprised by your response. it is a fact that on january 1st, if you're a couple, if you're dating and each of you earns $30,000 a year. if you marry, you lose $11,000 as of january 1. isn't that a sufficiently big direct impact on high school beings that the bill ought to be modified? we're going to find a number of thing like that. where it is a little hard for me to say let's wait a year or two. rip off a couple million americans and then we'll fix it. these things are pretty pat enltly unsustainable. >> i think that's one example. i don't have the facts that on. i do know when the business xhumt went to the white house and the president. look, we need more time to adjust on this bill. the president gave him more time. standing more time to work out the kinks. the business community said we're not ready. >> i'm talking about why did not he give his own second more

of domestic violence, florida's "stand your ground" law and self-defense. marissa alexander claims she was trying to scare after hur husband when she fired a sickle shot into the wall. >> i believed when he threatened to kill me, that's what he was going to do. >> reporter: now she's getting a a second chance to prove it. she said she was in the bathtub when her husband came after her. >> he managed to get the door open. he strangled me, put his hands around my neck. >> reporter: she managed to get away, grab her gun, and fired. before her first trial, florida attorneys tried to use the florida "stand your ground" law arguing she was immune from prosecution because she feared for her life. >> had i not discharged my weapon at that point, i would not be here. >> reporter: the court denied her claim. it then took a florida jury just 12 minutes to convict her of aggravated assault. she was sentenced to 22 years in prison. it called for a new trial. free marissa campaigns sprung up. this is an example of how domestic violence is often viewed. >> so much of the time when it comes to domesti
traction again today. that appears to be their defense against the health care debacle did dennis: she said sorry but didn't really mean it. what led to the disaster that is obamacare? secrecy. this according to our next guest, a reporter for tech crunch joining us now. you had a nice line in a column you referred to in "the daily beast." the president's signature bill is a culture of authoritarianism, cronyism and secrecy. >> secrecy is destroying obamacare. he refuses to let the public participate in the website. dennis: how so? >> there are three major aspects to secrecy destroying the website. first of all big government contractors are really the only ones who have access to even build the website in the first place. so it favors companies who have put more money into lawyers and lobbyists than programs. dennis: instead of hiring amazon or something. go ahead. >> the second part is it is pretty standard practice in the tech industry to solicit the best ideas from the rest of the world and bring those ideas in. dennis: open source movement. and this is not open source. >> no, no, no. cg
